Littleton Carnegie Library

-A A +A
1917, Jacques Benedict. 2707 W. Main St.

A Beaux-Arts jewel showcased at the west end of Main Street, this beige brick landmark nods to the Renaissance Revival in recessed openings with fanlighted arches framed by fluted Ionic pilasters. Decorative terracotta printers' marks and a griffin frieze hide below the cornice. After a new library opened in 1965, this became the police building, then a restaurant.
